Spice up your media
Ever wanted to feel like a pop star? Well, here’s your chance to make your very own music video.
It’s showtime. Produce your music videos, edit, and add effects from one place.
Assemble your camera crew and create a music video for your adoring fans. With Video Star, you can make tons of quirky, fun, and creative pieces. Choose from a clip that’s already in your camera roll and import it into the app.
Play around with the filters and images that you can add to your footage. Apply some of the filters to your lens before you start shooting so that you can see what your final product will look like. Sing along to your favorite tracks and live out your rockstar fantasy.
The software is able to match up to the music, so it plays in time with the footage. You just have to work on your best angles! Share your dazzling work with your friends and family.
The software is well-integrated with social media sites, like Facebook and Instagram, so you can upload your finished piece with minimal hassle. The app does come at a small cost, however. Considering the fact that there are many similar apps that are free, it may be off-putting to some. The price is a one-time payment though, and unlocks all the features of the program.
Get creative with Video Star
There is an issue with uploading music. You have to exit Video Star and download songs in iTunes before you try to find them in the app. It can be frustrating and time-consuming because you can’t download songs in the same program.
This program is available for any version of iOS. Video Show has similar tools and services, but is available for free.
Video Star is a fun and well-equipped app. It has a bunch of interesting tools that are entertaining and make for hours of fun. It’s a paid service, though, and there are plenty of similar apps that are free to use.
If you’re looking for a simple and well-equipped editing app, this is one for you. Integrated social media. Tons of filters.
Add music and photos.
Extra download for music.
Are you testing out the app with a free trial? If you choose to spring for the premium version, wait until your trial runs out. Otherwise, you’ll lose your trial access.
Where can you run this program?
Head to the gear icon to change the settings. From here, you can switch out the background color or lock your device in sandwich mode so you can get to work. You can change your video’s resolution from 360p to 720p, or 1080p with a click of the button. A lower resolution can help reduce the strain (and subsequent lag) of filming on an older phone.
If you want to know the latest song updates or take a look at the most popular songs on the service, you can opt to receive a daily new video notification. Tap on the icon for free updates.
As if that weren’t enough, for a backstage pass to all that’s new and exciting in the world of Video Star, you need to click the heart icon. Fall in love with the new content updates, contests to win free packs, and popular song updates.
You can discover a video creator you haven’t viewed before with the channel shoutout. Find amazing, new videos created by other fans of the Video Star app. You’ll never want for video creation inspo.
Is there a better alternative?
Video Star is only for Apple devices. You can use Video Star on iPhones and iPads. It requires iOS 10.0 or later.
Should you download it?
Spark Video Editor handles video a bit different. Instead of recording a film and editing, Spark lets you put related clips together. You’ll edit these different clips before merging them to create your video. It’s a great tool for vacations or special events but isn’t about filming on the fly. Spark has a different audience compared to Tik Tok.
If you want to tone things down a little and aren’t into the stars and hearts icons of Tik Tok, Adobe Premiere Rush for Video is for the serious video editor. Not only is it part of the Adobe Creative Cloud, so its free with a paid plan, but it’s packed with features other apps often lack (like long-form video and cross-device compatibility). It does offer fast and slow motion capabilities but everything about this app screams “professional.”
Adobe lacks the fun feel of Spark and Tik Tok but nothing beats Adobe’s color correction or lighting adjustment tools.
For unique edits a younger crowd would find appealing, Video Star wins. More mature fans (or anyone not dazzled by the pink heart icons) may want to move along.
